The Homesharing program can help you find a safe, secure
place to live with a limited income.
What is Homesharing?
The mission of Homesharing is to connect people who have an extra room in their house, homeprovider, with people who need a place to stay at low cost, homesharer.
You may want to consider being a homesharer if you are:
- Adult in the midst of career change
- Single parent
- Recently divorced or widowed person
- Working adult or a retired person with a limited income
- Person with a disability
- Person in transition seeking a safe, affordable home
Anyone over 18 can become a homesharer. There will be a background check.
The homesharer and the homeprovider come to an agreement. Sometimes this is simply a rent agreement. Sometimes there is less rent in exchange for work such as chores or personal assistance. These will be decided by the needs of both the sharer and provider.
